Fire severely damages duct cleaning truck in Windsor neighbourhood

Windsor police and fire officials are trying to determine exactly what caused a work truck to catch fire in Walkerville.

The incident happened shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday on Tuscarora Street between Parent Avenue and Langlois Avenue. Windsor Fire and Rescue said a duct-cleaning truck parked in the alley somehow caught fire. The rear of the vehicle was completely involved, though the truck’s cab sustained little or no damage.

The driver was working in the basement of the adjacent home when the fire broke out. He told BlackburnNewsWindsor.com he initially had no idea what was going on.

“I had no idea. I was working in the basement when someone knocked on the door,” he said. “I’ve worked here for three years and have never had this happen.”

Witnesses on scene said the driver jumped in the burning vehicle to move it away from the home, which suffered heat damage to the siding.

The fire was declared out within a half hour and there were no injuries reported.

Investigators were still on scene to speak with witnesses and determine exactly how the fire started. More information on this story will be passed along as it becomes available.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Windsor police at (519) 255-6700 or Crime Stoppers at (519) 258-TIPS (8477)

What the Sears bankruptcy means for Sears home services

Though Sears is struggling, that doesn’t mean everything with a Sears name is in trouble.

Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based Sears Holdings Corp. last week filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and will be closing another 142 Sears and Kmart stores by year-end, on top of 46 stores already slated to be shuttered.

But the Sears name applies to more than just the department stores.

Sears Home & Business Franchises is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sears so it is part of the company’s bankruptcy filing, but on a day-to-day basis the Columbus-based business operates separately with its own leaders, offices, IT, accounting, marketing, sales, etc.

“Given that we have the same name, there’s some consumer confusion,” said President Jeff Pepperney. “The services we provide aren’t being interrupted one bit. We’re freestanding from Sears.”

There are five service categories under the franchising business: Sears Carpet/Upholstery CleaningSears Air Duct CleaningSears Garage SolutionsSears Maid Services and Sears Handyman Solutions.

“People buy businesses from us because they’re leveraging that name, Sears. It drives consumer trust and commitment,” Pepperney said. “But we are family-owned businesses. Those families aren’t changing. They’re still out there, providing service.”

The 50-person corporate staff of Sears Home & Business Franchises has been based in the Polaris area since it was created 20 years ago and now oversees a franchise network of 140 franchisees overseeing 400 territories in the U.S.

cheap priced duct cleaning

So you want to hire a cheap priced duct cleaning company

You believe all duct cleaning companies are the same?

It’s fall and it’s that time of the year again to consider maybe getting those air ducts cleaned before we are isolated inside our homes for the next four months. It’s a great idea however picking the wrong business can also be your worse mistake! The industry of air duct cleaning is unregulated in most states and all provinces. Which means that most business that offer a duct cleaning are not registered with NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaning Association). So that leaves me to ask the following question where do they receive the proper training and safety guidelines to professionally clean your air ducts?

I’m sure you seen ads posted online from Kijiji, Craigslist, Google and Facebook community groups with an extremely tempting price. So who is behind these luring advertising’s? Well in almost every circumstance it’s an unqualified duct cleaner who prey’s upon the misinformed and naive consumer who believes all duct cleaning companies are the same.

How to stay protected and not make this mistake? Consumers should look to NADCA or visit our Business Rating section found only on DuctCleaning.org

To learn more about these unprofessional individuals who advertise relentlessly on Facebook groups Dishonest individuals offering duct cleaning on Facebook community groups

Jetty The Duct-Cleaning Robot Will Hunt You Down, Wash You With Dry Ice

It receives power and signal over a Ethernet-over-Cat5 cable, limiting its movement to about 35 meters right now, but it can clean and inspect kitchen, industrial, and office ducts with relative […]
